A recent behind-the-scenes jobby on Channel 5.
but Rodgers is David Brenting me to death already
I really don't want to acknowledge that this abomination exists, but at the same time I love that the world now knows that Brendan Rodgers has a giant portrait of himself on his living room wall.
is Brendan Rodgers from the 1970s?
He does look a bit like Gene Hunt's kid brother
especially when sat at his desk
As in followed a group of supporters over the season like the City one did. That part was fairly interesting, watching interviews of people in suits talk in management speak, or OTT slow-mo replays of crushing defeats set to modern classical music, not so much.
Just remembered who the club in question is. Can do without an hour a week of deluded people squeaking. Could just watch Soccer Saturday if i ever get to the point of missing that.
is talking about his brand of passing, pressing football so much that people think it actually exsists.
BRENT BRENT BRENT BRENT BRENT BRENT BRENT
did they watch it back and think it was a good idea?
Is it me or do they keep putting up the ad break titles, then just launching straight back into the prog? Struggling to sell ad time during this thing, huh?
Which might explain it.
This might be the best thing I've ever seen.
whatever happened to Peter Reid telling someone to fuck the fuck off in a half time dressing room
telling someone to 'BRING THEIR FACKIN' DINNER'
like a red army
SEE YOU HERE NEXT WEEK!!!!!
I doubt I would have if I was a Liverpool fan, though.
*Pulls up drawbridge*
guess this will be on the channel 5 i-player thingy. bloody hope so anyways.
I expected this show to be a banal promotional video for Fenway and Henry, and, of course, it is aimed at non-football fans in the USA, but, I didn't expect such a huge heaped pile of stinking, mawkish drivel.
What the bloody buggery are Fenway trying to sell to the Americans? This show was exactly the same as the nonsense that Peter Andre transmits about him, his family and his pointless existence. Several times during the transmission I had to leave the room for fear of having a lobotomy.
Both Rodgers and Gerrard shamelessly used young girls to help promote Liverpool FC, both thrusting them in front of the camera and saying how pretty they are. When Katie Price does that she, rightly, gets lambasted.
And, Rodgers has a MASSIVE picture of himself in his house. MASSIVE!!!!
Brendan is making a HUGE rod of ridicule for his own back by being involved in this.
That angry dubstep bit was painful.
But I do like Rodgers and hope he is with us for a while. Also how sound is Lucas? I think having 40,000 scousers on his back for 3 years has clearly made him a very grounded and humble individual, as opposed to the arrogant big-time wankers most footballers are.
to touch his young players on the face, and constantly tell them how good looking they are? Oh, it is? Okay then, carry on.
but the way he touched his niece's face... well I don't think there was anything sinister about it, but she can't have liked it much.
Not as weird as Gerrard pulling his daughters hair back and screaming in her face "what yer nerme luv?".
I bet Rogers gets a fair bit of George Bluth style bants from his assistant manager along the lines of 'my boy is sticking it to your daughter'
I got the distinct feeling the kid didn't want a camera in her face. After she said her name under duress he pushed her away saying "job done".
reminded me of a hostage being paraded for the cameras on a grainy vhs.
his dog is a single colour. Only posh people have dogs that are a single colour.
Worth watching for Jamie Carragher's yoga face alone. Deadline day's going to be fun to watch.
<reaches for popcorn>
Face the cameras, ffs
love (and agree) with this
And the problem is that they're good people too."
so far removed from the realities of English football it's untrue.
the good owners realise their role, that they should be seen and not heard. the bad ones see themselves as the most important cog in the wheel, which they are, but they shouldn't need the validation.
yes Brendan, we're fucking okay!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you support any other club bar Liverpool.
Can someone provide YouTube clips or some kind of link to footage?
and they really fucking love Lucas don't they?
That picking his number bit. So awkward.
and Rodgers had to make it sound like having number 24 was better. That was like a clip from The Office.
... he went on to explain why 6 is not an appropriate squad number...
2&3 = full backs
4&5 = centre backs
6&8 = centre mids
7&11 = wingers
9&10 = strikers
So how the fuck is number 6 not appropriate, or more suited to a defender?
Number 24, it can be like, your number. Yeah cheers boss.
6 was historically a centre-halfs number.
4 was always the midfield general.
...my point was that Xavi wears 6 for Barca doesn't he.
In fact, my main point was "the English Xavi"...
Didn't see this weeks offering but if they are talking number 24 for Joe Allen and calling him the English Xavi one question springs to mind: isn't he Welsh?
attention to detail goes into every aspect of the players diet and fitness etc., which makes you wonder why so many players are shit
although this closing monologue might be the neediest thing yet.
The West Brom game should be good, it'll be interesting to see how the Stalinist airbrushing job cover this up.
Anyone see tonight's episode? A whole hour documentary about the most sucessful team in the history of English football preparing for a home game against Manchester City.
Next week - a whole hour about their draw at home against Manchester City.
How much they went on about The Benchmark of Manchester City.
Apart from all the pointless slow motion, last night's was the best one. Nothing embarrassing.
I find all the pre-match tactical discussions the most interesting. How they prepare for games n dat.
And this week ... More from the extended family of Jay Spearing .... You like that fight fans?!
Did I imagine it, or did Brendan Rodgers have a whiteboard with a possible Man City lineup on it that had the formation listed as "1-3-5-2"?
Does Brendan Rodgers include the keeper in his formation?
